A year after his death, Kelsey Parker has said that her late husband Tom Parker 'contacts her'.
The Wanted singer passed away in March 2022 after undergoing treatment for stage four glioblastoma brain cancer. He was only 33 years old and recently completed a UK tour with his bandmates prior to his death.
Kelsey, widow and mum to their two children - Aurelia, three and Bodhi, two - said her beloved Tom ‘strokes her face’ at night and helps her with decisions regarding their children.
“I feel Tom’s presence all the time,” she shared. “This month he’s been with me a lot. I ask him for signs and he gives me them. He strokes my face when I’m asleep.”
Speaking to the Daily Star, Kelsey continued: “And I’ll see feathers everywhere. It happened when I went to the park the other day. There were feathers on the floor. No one else noticed them but I did.
“Feeling Tom is there helps me know that I’m doing the right thing. I’ll ask him if I’m doing the right thing for the kids and he’ll show me a sign. If you ask, they will show. But you have to ask out loud.”
Kelsey and Tom were together for 13 years before his tragic death. They tied the knot in 2018 and the mum-of-two marked one year since losing her husband with a beautiful Instagram post.
“A year ago Tom was about to go on tour for the final time (not that we knew that),” she captioned a black and white snap of herself kissing Tom’s forehead. “I was filled with hope but also knew the tour would be gruelling; it was something he needed to do and for him I’m so happy he got to do it one more time."
She continued: “I didn’t think then that I’d be facing my first birthday without him. Another first. We’re almost done with firsts but I’m not sure that’s going to make any difference.
“This isn’t what we planned or hoped for but its where we are and we’re going with it, enjoying all we can and living the life we have.”
Kelsey recently spoke to Tyla about how she coped leading up to Tom’s one-year anniversary, which was on Thursday (30 March).
The grieving mum will be featured in Ashley Cain's new series MTV FACES, which will see celebs engage in raw discussions about death, suicide, and loss.
Describing the first six months as ‘an outer-body experience’, she shared: "I've just been dreading the month of March because it was my birthday at the beginning of the month, I've had Mother's Day, and now Tom's anniversary.
“I just don't know how you prepare for it, really."
